Derby Name: Coccyx Block
Derby #: 604
Is there a story behind your name and number? I fractured my coccyx at freshmeat try outs (by slamming into the floor and the penalty box chairs, oh yeahhhh all of the chairs)- and thus…a legend was born.
As for my number- right before I found the amazing sport that is roller derby, I actually had a miscarriage. It was an experience like nothing I had ever been through before. But roller derby helped me to find myself again, and truly saved me. So my number represents the day that everything changed for me, but it’s also a reminder of the little angel I have looking out for me.
What year did you start roller derby? 2015
What roller derby team(s) have/do you play for? Mad Dollies & Counterstrike
Any derby/sports heroes? I have too many roller derby sheroes/heroes to even list here- this is the most amazing community I have ever been a part of, and it’s FULL of amazing people!
Best derby memory? Well I met my girlfriend through roller derby, and all of my memories with her are my favorite = ) so thanks roller derby!
Worst derby memory? Probably busting my ass in front of my soon to be (at the time) league and sliding across the floor spread eagle taking out every penalty box chair as I went. Supaaaa starrrrrr.
CLOSE second- the time I was jamming and a member of my own team appeared in front of me and my feet and brain froze, SO instead of moving out of the way I slammed into her- face on face on face.
Why do you play roller derby? I play roller derby because it challenges me every single time I take the track, and it has taught me so much about myself and life in general.
Gear you couldn’t live without? Crazy toe stops!! They are AMAZING, and long lasting.
Likes: Tacos, goat cheese, kittens and kayaking.
Dislikes: Peas, 27/5, the dentist and shopping for things I actually NEED.
What do you do when you aren’t skating? NSOing? (Just kidding). When I’m not skating I’m working- orrrrr spending time with my girlfriend and our tiny zoo.
